Huawei X-Gen Wi-Fi Redefines the Agile Campus Network Era

Huawei launched the X-Gen Wi-Fi Solution consisting of the industry's first 10G-capable access point (AP) AP7060DN and multi-gigabit Ethernet switch S6720-32C-PWH-SI.
In compliance with the latest 802.11ax Wi-Fi standard, the AP7060DN leverages 8x8 MU-MIMO, OFDMA, and 1024-QAM technologies. In this manner, the AP achieves the three-fold bandwidth increase and four-fold increase in the number of concurrent access users. For the first time in the industry, the AP7060DN allows for hybrid access through both 10 Gbps capable Wi-Fi and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, such as Bluetooth, ZigBee, and RFID, making more innovative service experience possible and redefining the agile campus network era.

Why 10G 802.11ax Wi-Fi?

Emerging technologies, such as IoT, 4K/8K HD video, and Augmented Reality (AR)/Virtual Reality (VR), impose high-bandwidth, low-latency requirements for Wi-Fi networks. Additionally, the number of access terminals (including IoT terminals) in the office and business scenarios grows exponentially. Existing Wi-Fi standards and products are encountering great challenges to scale network capacity and bandwidth to meet these growing demands.
